Let the patterning begin - Weatherby SA-08

Postby RefugeRat4Life » Tue Aug 12, 2014 2:20 pm

Alright... so I have been blindly shooting the cheapest load (Fiocchi 1/18oz #2 @ 1500 fps) for the last 3 seasons since I picked up my new Weatherby SA-08 shotgun. I am now going to test 12 different loads. Here are the particulars:

Shotgun - 12 gauge Watherby SA-08 Black Synthetic
Choke - Carlsons Waterfowl Mid Range Extended Choke - Modified .705
Loads - See Picture( Not shown - 3", 1 1/4oz #2 1400 FPS Federal Speed Shok and 3", 1 1/8oz #3 Fiocchi 1500 FPS)

I will be taking two shots, one at 30 yards and one at 40 yards, for each load with a standard 30" circle. I will also be using a fixed rifle rest so the shots are always at the same spot.

I will post up my results with pictures. Should be heading to the property on Sat or Sun.

And on the 9th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "now that I have a caretaker, I need a protector." So God made a hunter...
